January 16, 2013 -- This week on "Your Turn", Janet Kopenhaver, Washington representative for the group Federally Employed Women, joins host Mike Causey to talk about the impact that a government shutdown would have on federal employees.

Kopenhaver has been monitoring the big picture what-if scenario for FEW.

Later in the show, Federal Times senior writer Sean Reilly gives us an insider's look at shutdowns and furloughs. He also talks about the defense hiring freeze, changes in the Combined Federal Campaign, and the new arbitrator-imposed contract between the Postal Service and the National Association of Letter Carriers.
